The print editions of the Esri Press books, GIS Tutorial for ArcGIS Desktop 10.8 and Getting to Know ArcGIS Desktop 10.8 have included a free, 180-day software trial. However, after November 30th, 2023 new software trials will no longer be available. Any trials that have started before November 30th, 2023, will still continue through the full 180-day trial period, as originally offered.

Starting in December 2023, print versions of these books will no longer be available, though purchases can be made while supplies last. E-books will continue to be available for the near-term. We encourage everyone who has enjoyed these books to take this opportunity to explore the versions of these books which use ArcGIS Pro.

For those needing resources to help with this transition, the book Switching to ArcGIS Pro from ArcMap, second edition, is a concise yet comprehensive guide for getting up to speed. This book introduces experienced ArcMap users to the ribbons, panes, and project-based structure of ArcGIS Pro.
